Yes, but it's not such a bad choice, as the snapshot was itself built from
-current sources.

So, by grabbing one of the -current source tarballs, you get about the same
source that the snapshot was made from anyway, just something that's a bit

Having said that, arguments have been advanced periodically that we should
put up the exact source the snapshot was made from; if people really care
we can certainly do that.
